ON THE NEEDLES
Mr. Iknead’s socks continue to grow. The first of the pair is finished, and the second maybe 2/3 finished. My goal is to have them done in time for FO Friday. I’ve said that before and been defeated, but hope springs eternal and all that.
Wise Hilda’s Basic Ribbed Socks for Mr. Iknead
I noticed yesterday that my basil was beginning to flower and that means it needed to be harvested quickly if I’m to have more basil this summer. I was going to dry it, but learned that because basil has a high water content, it does better when frozen than when dried. Learn something new every day, I do.

BY THE BOOK
I’m nearly through with Joyland and have enjoyed it immensely, wishing sometimes that there were just a couple more hours in the day, like 26 or 27 instead of just 24, just so I could squeeze in a little more of my favorite pastimes. (I think I just heard a few moms of toddlers groan.) I also checked out a couple of library books on spinning and knitting; the pictures are lovely, I may never get to the text!
